FPT University Ho Chi Minh City, 2016-ongoing
Rapid urban development in Vietnamese cities has eclipsed urban greenways. Designed to suggest a growing mountain, this university building features staggered floors enclosing a park filled with trees and plants. These green elements extend from the central courtyard to the balconies, terraces, and circulation wells. The trees facilitate shade and cooling, improve air quality, and reduce the need for energy-consuming air conditioning.
